    Well there's one good thing about it being dull outside on your day off, you can play about in Photoshop

    This is three photos layered on top of each other in Photoshop which I then played with curves, levels, hue and saturation and finally a dit of the ol' dodge n burning

    Looks good, rich colors fun doing that kind of stuff.

    Sometime maybe try that with a time lapse over an hour or so.

    Mainly because HDR would of brought out the detail in the foreground which wasn't the effect I was after

    The 3 little thumbnails were all separate exposures layered on top of each other, 1 being the bottom layer, 2 the middle and 3 the top

    ta

    cheers

    thanks

    thank you

    go for it

    As everyone else has already said, great picture.

    Being new to photoshop and post processing in general, perhaps you can help me understand something here? You've taken three shots and added different colours to the sky/foreground and then merged them together. Could the same result be achieve just by playing with one image? Or am I missing something?

    The 3 shots I had taken I had used 2 filters, a tobacco grad and a FLW grad, but as the weather was pretty dull today and I was bored out of skull I thought I'd play with PS and just came up with that shot, by chance.

    If Cokin did a Red grad filter in X-Pro I probably would of got the same result. And I'm sure a PS expert could of done it with just one photo but I was just playing and all of a sudden I had the above image, pure luck. Didn't start playing to get that result it just happened
